The Michigan Small Cooperative Conference is for directors and members of small and recently organized cooperatives and people who are contemplating starting a cooperative or other group organzation. We will provide information about basic cooperative operation including types of cooperatives; the role of directors, managers, and members, and basics for starting and sustaining a cooperative. We will allow plenty of time for networking and input from the participants into issues and opportunities for cooperatives in Michigan.

The Conference will be at three separate locations. Please register for one session in the location that is most convenient for you.

 Registration at each site will be at 8:30 AM. The Conference will convene at 9:00 AM with lunch at noon as part of the program. Morning and afternoon breaks will also be included.  Below is the tentative agenda. 

There is no registration fee thanks to strong support from our sponsors: CoBank, Michigan State University Product Center, Mid America Cooperative Council, and various support organizations.

 Please register by March 10 to allow us to adequately plan for the Conference.
